Has anyone looked at the current list of exhibitors for this years show. After the extra expense of last year with little extra income it looks as thought the Asian and some of the European nurseries have given up. On a related topic. What will happen regarding European nurseries coming to the UK if we leave the EU? I know from experience it is impossible to send to Switzerland. Commercially, it will be like trading with the rest of the world. Phytos and CITES!!

Hi Jeff,

Well at least one nursery was forgotten when they published their list online :shock: , luckily for us I noticed and they have now updated their list...
The number of nurseries/traders attending is indeed going downhill!


Kenneth.

Well, what did you think ?

Not too impressed again this year, bought just 7 plants Preview evening, returned today hoping there would be more plants put out overnight and bought another 11, so a total of 18 plants.
Vendor numbers seem to be decreasing each year, I was determined to increase my collection but due to lack of choice bought things I would not normally have considered before (a couple of pleurothallis) or things I'd never heard or know of, but at least there are fewer gaps in my collection now.
